​Uefa could extend ban on Man Utd defender Bailly

Eric Bailly could be hit with an extended ban after being sent off in Manchester United's Europa League semi-final against Celta Vigo, reports Sporting Life.

The 23-year-old was handed a straight red card for pushing John Guidetti in the face, with Celta defender Facundo Roncaglia following him down the tunnel after raising his hand to the Ivorian in retaliation.

Both players are suspended for at least one European club competition match, meaning United centre-back Bailly will miss the Europa League final against Ajax on May 24.

The duo could also have their bans extended when their cases are heard by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on July 20.
